That's good to know it's consistent. Sounds like a firmware bug to me
too now. One other thing which you may not have tried is booting m$ then
warmbooting into linux (don't turn off the machine between boots). I
just remembered that with older versions ofthe driver this was the only
way to get the multiface to work.
I can't remember if you are running cvs or not (probably no).

They shouldn't as long as you remove them before running hdsploader :)

Being on stage with the band in front of crowds shouting, "Get off! No!
We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything
I've ever done.
